Nicholas Hoult Talks X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

The first we've heard from the ‘Beast’ actor about reprising his First Class role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, Nicholas Hoult says he's excited to reunite with director Bryan Singer. Check it out!

Amid the press junket for his romantic zombie comedy Warm Bodies, Nicholas Hoult was queried about returning as Hank McCoy/Beast from X-Men: First Class in the Days of Future Past sequel. Refraining from divulging story details, via ScreenCrave, the English actor says he is anticipating being reunited with his Jack the Giant Slayer director, Bryan Singer, for the Marvel adaptation.

“We’ve gotten along really well,” Hoult said of director Bryan Singer, who served as a producer on First Class. “He’s fantastic on the X-Men films. He really knows what’s going on. And from what I’ve heard about the script, I think it’s going to be a really cool film. I’m looking forward to it. I like that character as well. I don’t think we start for another few months.”

Given that some actors from the X-Men trilogy are returning, it's worth noting that Kelsey Grammer portrayed the big blue furball in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). However, there's no word on whether the modern-day iteration of Hank McCoy will take part in Days of Future Past, or if Grammer will return as well.

X-Men: Days of Future Past stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Jason Flemyng with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart. And as aforementioned, more actors from the X-Men trilogy are expected to make an appearance in the upcoming mutant ensemble sequel. Reportedly starting principal photography in Spring, Bryan Singer directs Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past time travel adaptation into theaters on July, 18 2014 in 2D/3D!
